Being extremely lazy about everything, including blogging.
Loads of ideas for posts but too little ambition - I just don't feel like sitting in front of the computer.
Maybe next week...or whenever we get a rainy day.
Procrastination. It should be a 4-letter word.

I don't think his lawsuit will amount to anything, partly because many older versions of the Bible have used the word "homosexual", including my 1952 NRSV. Using the word was not unique to these publishers. Also, the author is out of town. :-)
The passage that has caused Mr. Fowler's pain is 1 Corinthians 6:9, which reads (I'm including verse 10 as well - from the ESV):
But wait, there's more. And I really really really wish someone would have read this part to Mr. Fowler too (verse 11):
First there is the law (verses 9 & 10), and then there is the gospel (verse 11). Let's not have one without the other. In Christ Jesus we are washed, sanctified & justified by the Holy Spirit. You, me, and Mr. Fowler.
I came across a great definition of forgiveness I'd like to share with you, and all the hurting Mr. Fowler's of the world. From Susan's Pendulum:
A grieved heart pours out her struggle with sin and pain.

Religious snake-handlers busted in Kentucky
I've got a new favorite quote (from the last paragraph of the article): "You can purchase anything off the Internet except common sense."
You can say THAT again!

Her blog is Living in Canaan. Worth a look-see!
Excellent news, shoppers! The FLDS now has an online store:
It appears their vacation outside the compound taught them something about capitalism and marketing. Good for them! Enterprising Americans!
I admit, I am tempted to buy one of those little dresses for my 3-year old. Or one of the nightgowns! So cute!! Kinda pricey.... I could make them for less.... if I could sew properly.
Moral dilemma - is it right to support (via a business transaction) a polygamist cult?
(Yeah, that's coming from someone who just vacationed in Vegas. Ha ha ha.)
But wait! Before you answer, did you know the Walton family that founded (and still owns a large percentage of) the Wal-Mart chain is Mormon?
Caught between a rock and a hard place...
